    "I like this program but..."

    February 1, 2006  |   By inachu

    Pros

    It does a great overall job of finding spyware.

    Cons

    When a program sits in the system tray then that should mean it is activly aware to any spyware that may be lurking on the system but it sits there and does nothing and to delete the spyware you must do a scan. If it does nothing then why does it sit in the system tray? Norton Antivirus actively protects and being in the system tray shows that it is fully alert ready the catch the instant a virus hits the system but with spysweeper you can infect your system like crazy and it won't do anything until you run a scan. I vote that spysweeper be taken out of the system tray and needs to be removed from the system services which slows the entire pc down.
